Safe to Tell
Mission Safe2Tell was founded on the idea that prevention and early intervention is the key to preventing violence and saving lives. The guiding principles of this safety and prevention initiative model include educating young people and school staff on critical issues; encouraging them to play a role in prevention; equipping them with a tangible direct way to report anonymously, while empowering them to make a difference. Bringing a proactive plan of reporting to focus, the Safe2Tell Colorado model allows for early interventions to take place in regards to behaviors identified as precipitators to violence and for those behaviors that endanger the health and well-being of youth. The strategy framework established by the model provides a sophisticated and efficient method for sharing information to local responders and schools; builds a system that establishes best practices for schools to identify a team response along with law enforcement partners; encourages training and provides CEU’s; and establishes methods for accountability and follow-up on each report, thereby reducing liability to the individual schools and providing a way to effectively measure outcomes.
